Publisher's Summary

Even after nearly 20 years of marriage, Jillian Noble is still madly in love with her sexy-as-sin husband, Dean. But now that their two sons are grown and it's just the two of them alone again, there's something that Jillian wants from her husband. Something he's been holding back since the day they met - the dominant man he rarely lets show.

Now she wants it all, and when Dean agrees to unleash his more assertive side, all bets are off as he introduces her to dark, forbidden desires that will change the course of their marriage.

    "BDSM w/ love"

    I have never been interested in BDSM. However, Ms. Wilde shows a different side that makes this series fun, hot, sexy and not scary. Her writing is now at the top of my TBR pile!!

    "Great read /great narration"

    In this group of books (volume 1-4) it is about a couple that has been married for 19 years and Jillian the wife wants to put some spice in the relationship. They love each other but she feels like her husband Dean has been holding back and she trusts him implicitly. In the first volume it is the awakening where Jillian brings up adding more to their sex life by visiting Dean at his office.
    The next, volume 2 the seduction, is when Dean takes Jillian out and they start on the journey of adding more spice in the bedroom and it gets hot. The pearl screen is great.
    The Taking Volume 3, takes place when Dean makes Jillians fantasy happen and its smoking. Also it has Jillian take control. To see the couple become even closer is great.
    Volume 4 the temptation, is when Jillian helps Dean fullfill his fantasy. This volume is great. The love and trust they show each other is absolutely great and the way that Erika Wilde writes their story and sex scenes is hot. This was one of the first books I read of Erika Wildes and recently reread and that is how great these stories are. The narration was wonderful this was the first book I listen by Lia Langola she kept me interested and not wanting to put it down.

    "The Marriage Diaries"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes.<br/><br/>Its a well written book with mature characters.<br/><br/>It shows a loving married couple who after 19 years of marriage still love each other.<br/><br/>The best thing about the book was the connection between Jillian and Dean .<br/><br/>I loved the fact Jillian was confident enough to take the first step towards enhancing their love lives<br/>


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    <br/>I love the openness between Jillian and Dean. <br/><br/>They were at ease with one another and gave each other what they both needed.<br/><br/>I enjoy books were both the Hero and Heroine are confident strong people<br/>


    Which scene was your favorite?

    <br/>All the scenes were well written and the intimate moments hot!<br/><br/>I especially like the scene where Dean got jealous when Jillian danced with another man! What he did later on was hot.<br/>


    Any additional comments?

    <br/>Another great narration by Lia Langola. Lia did fantastically portraying both characters.<br/><br/>Its never easy narrating sex scenes in a believable passion filled way. Lia managed to convey this emotion and passion filled book , beautifully!<br/>

    "Boring"

    This really didn't have me excited. Great if you're interested in attempting a better sex life for your marriage, but nothing that really snags your attention.

    "Predictable Racy Romance-Great Narration As Always"


    💋 There isn't too much to add to the publisher's description.

    Jillian and her ex-Navy SEAL husband have always been traditional in the bedroom. High school sweethearts about to celebrate their 20th anniversary, Jillian is ready to spice things up in the boudoir. Her only reluctance is how her husband may react to her "kinky" desires…

    Lia Langola always shows up and delivers. Her talent is easily recognized and if you see that she's narrating a book, it is bound to be hot!

    This book is definitely for grown-ups and it sounds like there are more installments on the way.

    I received this book in exchange for my review.

    If you found my review helpful, would you please select "yes" directly below.

    Consider following me on Audible, I get to review books in all genres (especially contemporary romance) and have no problem being upfront with my reactions. You will see that I have no problem being blunt.

    Authors, narrators, publishers feel free to use this review, if you'd like.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this review. I hope you found it helpful.

    Story
    "perfect for beginners "

    this is a good book but be warned it is more along the lines of beginner bdsm than the more hard core bdsm. it perfect for someone who is curious about how bdsm will work in a not 50 shades of gray way someone who wants to read more in to the bdsm in erotica fiction but is not sure if they are really in to it. The narrator is good and has a lot of sex but that is to be expected from a bdsm story line. there are only two major characters but the writer took her time developing there sexual storyline both really much else though. it does repeat a few things unnessasaraly like how long they'd been married . overall not bad

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    Story
    "One perfect husband!"
    Any additional comments?

    Oh my god! This book is pure sex! A couple madly in love even after 19 years of marriage, discovering their sexuality anew and indulging in countless fantasies they only ever dreamed of before, too afraid what the other might think. Until Jill takes a chance and brazenly seduces her husband, Dean, which finally sets free his inner caveman-like alpha male that always lurked beneath the surface. Now with their inhibitions lowered a whole new world of possibilities lies in front of them – and they both plan to take full advantage of it.<br/><br/>Once again, whew! These short novellas are so incredibly hot. There is not much more happening than living out or preparing for one fantasy after the other, each one described in beautiful detail, and yet I could not get enough of it. It has a lot to do with the love that both radiated for the other. Their connection runs deep, even more enhanced by their spiced-up sex-life.<br/><br/>Once Jill opened the box of Pandora, they openly talk about each and every of their dirtiest and most daunting fantasies. You can feel the trust running deep between those two. And Jill trusts Dean even more than he trusts himself. With his history he is afraid his inner alpha will overrun him so that he involuntarily hurts Jill. There were one or two moments where Dean feared afterwards that he had taken things too far and betrayed his wife’s implicit trust – the way he tended to her and cradled her in those moments after having unleashed the beast on her had me sighing in awe. The utter devotion he has for his wife… this in combination with his alpha side makes Dean one perfect man. Even more so when Jill brings a fantasy of his to life, one he thought he would enjoy, but only made him realize that he wants Jill for himself and himself alone – he almost went on a rampage to stake his claim on her! I absolutely approved of his behavior – wouldn’t have it any other way tbh – and then I swooned… and swooned some more. Oh, Dean being an ex-Navy SEAL added even more to the swoon-factor.<br/><br/>My favorite of all those manifold fantasies has to be the one in the third volume when things become… well, aggressive and incredibly intense, even more so than during other encounters. I wished I could say more about that particular scene, as it left me absolutely breathless, but as that might spoil it for someone, I will leave it at that.<br/><br/>In this book you won’t find many outspoken love declarations and yet their deeply rooted love for one another is absolutely palpable in almost every action they take. This book is unbelievably beautifully written and erotica at its best. I wished there were more books like this one – both in writing style and with long-married couples discovering their relationship anew.<br/><br/>I listened to the audio version of this book, which is narrated by Lia Langola. So many things can go wrong with a narrated erotic novel. If the feelings – the passion – does not come across, the story can be as good as it wants without reaching the reader at all. But I was able to get completely lost in the narration. She portrayed everything perfectly. I loved Dean’s voice and believed every alpha-word he spoke. I am glad that there is another volume of this adventurous couple as I cannot wait to listen to it!
